Nice Astra 300 acquisition. I have a fondness for these little pistols and own several of them. They are a very well made pistol. Take one apart and you will notice the fine machining and the excellent fit and finish of metal parts. They have a very good reputation by those that used them in WWII. They are also very fun to shoot and are very accurate. Congratulations on a acquiring a very collectible German Astra contract pistol and thanks for the fine photo presentation. Now you need one of the non waffen stamped German Astra contract pistols in 7,65 caliber!
